How to you shape the 3-ball Dwarf Alberta Spruce? I'm sure there is a certain procedure to follow to make it look nice.

This plant is best maintained in its shape by frequent but very light clippings using a sharp bypass hand pruner. It grows slowly so you just take off a tiny bit every time you prune. This keeps the shape crisp. Step back often to check your work so it doesn't get lopsided.
